Assigning print style tables

Select a print style table before printing if you want to change how your drawing appears when you print it. Print style tables can modify how colors, pen widths, linetypes, and lineweights look when they are printed.

You can assign print style tables globally for all layouts (including the Model tab), or individually for the Model tab or a Layout tab. Assigning a print style table to an individual layout allows you to further customize the layouts you use to print a drawing.

However, assigning different named print style tables to various layouts may result in mismatched print style names; a named print style assigned to an entity or layer may not be located in the assigned print style table at print time. In this case, entities are printed using their default properties, which is similar to assigning the Normal print style to an entity or layer.

To assign print style tables

  1. If necessary, click the desired Layout tab, or click the Model tab.
  2. Do one of the following:
    • Choose File > Print.
    • Type print and then press Enter.
  3. Click the Advanced tab.
  4. Under Print Style Table (Pen Assignments), select a print style table that you created or one of the following:
    • None — Applies no print style table. Entities print according to their own properties.
    • Icad — Uses the default print style table and its color assignments.
    • Monochrome — Prints all colors as black.
  5. At the prompt, choose Yes to assign the print style table to all layouts in the drawing, including the Model tab, or choose No to assign the print style table only to the individual layout listed in Layout Name on the Print dialog box.
  6. Select Save Changes to Layout, and then click Apply to save your changes.

NOTE When your drawing was first created it was set up to use either color-dependent or named print style tables.
